take months. Luckily, Ranck Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning knows how to prevent a home or business flooding disaster.

That’s right. Your home or business may be giving you some warning signs of a potential pipe break, but Ranck is here to help.

Plumbing Warning Signs Before Flooding

The plumbing in your home reacts to pressure and changes in your environment. Most home or business plumbing systems are made out of steel, copper, plastic or cast iron, all of which are susceptible to cracks and breaks. No matter the age of your home or business, pay attention to the following warning signs from your pipes and plumbing:

  • Leaking pipes
  • Pipes rattle/are noisy
  • Sudden increase in water bills
  • Water failing to drain (sinks/showers)
  • Weak water pressure
  • Water backing up in other appliances
  • Mold around pipes

These plumbing warning signs can save you the burden of intense cleanup the sooner you attend to them. If you see any of these plumbing warning signs and live in the Lancaster area, be sure to contact Ranck Plumbing immediately.

Flooding Disaster in Home or Business

Flood damage goes beyond just cleaning up your home. Aside from draining water out, floods are a major concern to your family’s health. In the right conditions, a plumbing flood can cause the development of mold within 24 hours.

Flood damage can be toxic to humans if it’s not taken care of properly, and the search for mold and moisture continues long after the initial event. All porous materials must be thrown out as the disinfecting process begins. Depending on the severity of the plumbing flood, your home or business may require new paint, siding, flooring, drywall or ceilings.

What Causes Your Pipes to Break?

It doesn’t matter if you just moved in or got pipe replacements. Always inspect home plumbing regularly. Plumbing naturally wears down over time, and any of the following factors may lead to pipes breaking unexpectedly:

  • Cracks that go unrepaired
  • Uneven pressure
  • Intense heat or cold
  • Clogging

Fortunately, Ranck Plumbing, Heating & AC has the perfect solution in the event of a plumbing emergency.
